CES 2010 Show - One year after introducing what has become the world’s best-selling 3D printer - the Dimension uPrint - Stratasys says it has expanded the product line with the uPrint Plus - an enhanced version with lots of new features - while still keeping the price under $20,000 (USD). Like the dimension uPrint personal 3D printer, the Stratasys uPrint Plus 3D printer has a small footprint for true desktop use (635 x 660 mm). The 3D printer can print in eight colors of Stratasys ABSplus material, making it easier for designers to differentiate individual assembly components and better depict their product.

The 3D printer has a build envelope of 203 x 203 x 152 mm - 33% more volume than the uPrint, enabling larger models. The 3D printer offers two resolution settings 0.254 mm and 0.330 mm to give users additional print options. Stratasys uPrint Plus 3D printer also features two support-material enhancements that reduce material consumption and modeling time. The first, Smart Supports, is a software enhancement that reduces material usage by 40%, cutting costs. The second, SR-30, is an improved soluble support material that dissolves 69% faster, to speed the modeling process. Smart Supports are available for both uPrint and uPrint Plus 3D printers.

“When the uPrint 3D printer was introduced one year ago, it quickly became the best selling 3D printer worldwide, with 1,000 3D printers sold in the first 9 months,” says Dimension Product Manager Mary Stanley. “Based on its success and customer requests for expanded features, the uPrint Plus was created. Now designers, engineers and architects have expanded options for building models based on proven FDM technology.” Stratasys uPrint Plus material colors include red, blue, olive, black, dark gray, nectarine, fluorescent yellow, and ivory. The new 3D printer will be available for shipment in March through authorized Stratasys resellers.
